Make a difference in our community

We are seeking to fill a board vacancy representing the low-income sector, an important volunteer position. Directors provide insight into community problem solving based on their knowledge and understanding of both the community and the sector they represent. They are responsive to community designated needs and participate in planning programmatic strategies as a part of a community action plan. Directors play an important role in helping people change their lives, impacting families and the community at large.  A candidate for this vacancy need not himself/herself be low income and/or economically disadvantaged, but must truly represent low income and must reside in Tuolumne or Amador County.


Representatives of the low-income sector will be selected in a democratic selection procedure to assure that these members are representative of the low-income neighborhood served; reside in the neighborhood served; and are able to participate actively in the development, planning, implementation, and evaluation of ATCAA programs. 

Low-Income Representative Sector applicants must have either; 

  • low-incomes or fixed incomes and meet the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) income guidelines, or;

  • must represent low-income people in their county of residence, or;

  • represent a particular low-income neighborhood in the county of residence.
